careers information

At Yate Academy, we recognise the significance of meaningful and comprehensive careers education, which provides all our students with the knowledge and the skills to understand the opportunities and pathways available to them.
Yate Academy’s careers provision aims to enable students to make well informed, realistic choices about their future, in line with the Gatsby Benchmarks and in compliance with the Baker Clause which came into force January 2018.

Responsibility for the Careers programme at Yate Academy lies with the following people:

Head of Character and Careers: Mr Simon Matthews

Headteacher: Mr Eddie Rakshi

Independent Careers Advisor and Transition Coach that is in school every Thursday: Mrs Zara Mee

How could you support our Careers Programme?

  • Deliver a talk to our students, in regard to your profession, your own career journey or your company

  • Take part in interactive workshops, supporting our students with their employability skills

  • Take part in our Careers fairs, to showcase your company and your skills and knowledge

  • Offer opportunities during Work Experience days

How do we measure impact?

We measure and assess the impact of our careers programme on pupils through an annual careers evaluation impact report produced by an independent third party from the Education Development Trust. 

Additionally, we measure the impact through student and parent surveys, individual student feedback on each career one-to-one session that they participate in, and evaluation forms completed by participants after career events and options evenings.
